mitt romney zingers? >> well, i think we'll all be watching, because they have been preparing their zingers for months. but the president just sees this very differently. he is going to speak directly to the american people. people sitting on their couches at home, people who haven't focused on the fact that there is an election. we know there is a huge audience, and that's what we're focused on. >> stephanie: both sides always play the lowering the expectations game, right? >> of course. it is part of the game. >> stephanie: so the thing is, i'm curious how you guys are feeling. you probably saw chris christie said it is going to be a whole new day, and the whole campaign is going to start all over. >> he said it is going to turn the whole thing upside down, and we believe chris christie. but the president is focused on
speaking to the american people. when the romney campaign says they are going to have a game changer, what does that mean? they will tied or up in ohio? or surging in nevada? we'll see what that means. we don't think the american people are looking for zingers. >> stephanie: yeah exactly. i think one thing the president and the vice president have been doing that is really smart is trying to box mitt romney in on taxes. biden said if governor romney's plan goes into effect it could mean that every one of you would be paying more on your social security. don't you have to force mitt romney to finally give the american people some specifics. >> they haven't had a great week on that front. paul ryan said on sunday that there wasn't enough time to explain it which i think the
american people may say wait a second. and they have a series of misfires and try to answer the question. i think the american people are looking for answers. if you are a teacher or a firefighter, you are thinking why am i paying a higher tax rate than this guy? >> stephanie: yeah. and i didn't think it was has bad has his last appearance on fox news where he said he hadn't actually run the numbers. >> yeah you should run those numbers. >> stephanie: yeah. jen when you heard about the 47% video, did you believe it? >> there were things as you remember -- there were pieces of that video that trickled out over the course of 24 hours, so with every piece it was more and more -- not unbelievable, but i
think i was like many americans sitting there thinking did he really say all of that? and the problem for mitt romney is this just solidifies what people think he thinks. you know? yeah. he thinks that the wealthiest should have the tax benefits not the middle class, and that's part of the problem for them. >> stephanie: that's exactly right. that's why clearly the polls are showing that it is not resinating. because it is not a gaffe, it is their policies. >> right. he said many things that left people scratching their heads who saw the video later. >> stephanie: right. speaking of taxes, is that going to be an issue again? because i didn't believe that mitt romney can get away with that little transparency with breaking the standard that every presidential candidate including his father -- if he won't show us his own tax -- and he is
trying to make part of this campaign based on taxes. that's unconscionable. >> the president always says when you are running for office people want to lift the hood and kick the tires, and know what you are all about. the american people want to know did you invest in chinese companies? did you invest in -- you know what kind of companies -- investments were you involved in? and i think that's part of what we think should be in the discussion, and many people agree. there was a big story on the front of the times about how mitt romney financially benefited from bain. and if you are a teacher going to work, you are thinking why do i have to pay a higher rate. >> stephanie: yeah, it's a basic
question of fairness. for instance if you are running -- literally it sounds like they think everything is off balance -- like you are running on your record as a business person and he doesn't want to talk about bain. >> right. >> stephanie: he apparently doesn't want to talk about his record as governor of massachusetts. >> right. my favorite is he takes credit for covering children with health care, but one of the first things he wants to do in office is veto the affordable care act. >> stephanie: yeah, you know the sheer sign of desperation in the romney camp is that he brought up romney care. that was really -- wow. they are trying to react to this 47% video, which is so damaging right? >> yeah, that's true. i think where we are, is we just have to keep reminding supporters that this race will be close because the country is
divided. it is not over until the fat lady sings. so we have a little while to go here. >> stephanie: people have pointed that out, jen, obviously people that want to see a horse race say carter was ahead by the same amount over reagan at this point, and blah blah, blah. how concerned are you? >> we think the polls will narrow, just because we're not going to win some of these states by the amount where the polls show them at this stage. and that's a natural part of the ebbs and flows of any campaign. and we want to make sure that somebody who supports the president doesn't say i don't really need to get out there and register, because this thing is locked. and it's not locked. and that's one of the things we're worried about and focus on every day. >> stephanie: how concerned are you about a lot of these voter suppression tactics.
we obviously just won a great victory this morning in pennsylvania. >> we did. it's something we are very focused on and the best thing we can do for people in those states is education them. and make sure they have the information they need for when and how they can vote. it's unfortunate of course that there is any effort to prevent or limit people's access to voting. whether you are a democrat republican, independent, it doesn't matter to us. we think you should vote. so we have spent a lot of time and resources educating these people in how to vote. >> stephanie: you would think if you were really confident in your positions, you would want as many people as possible to vote. >> well, you said that not me. >> exactly. >> there is clearly motivation
going on here. >> stephanie: jen you are press secretary, you know i'm trying to drag you into my own publicity.

barely uncovered any potential non-citizens. in total 198 names, jim. 8 million people voted last time. and of those possible 198 names, only 38 have actually voted. the most likely explanation for why many of them became registered voters is they accidentally registered while trying to fill out a driver's license.
